Eduardo Caccia, in the lecture, explained the importance of brands in the global market, therefore specified that it is necessary for each brand to have a corporate image to demonstrate its reason of being, reason that would have to go directly with the added value of each brand.
He also spoke about the different values that people give to goods. These values diversify the markets, thus, he assured that if a customer buys at a furniture store, it´s because they saw a value in the goods acquired, meaning this value was not seen at other furniture stores.
Eduardo Caccia invited the associates to investigate the reason of being of their companies, if they do not know, they would have to speak with the founders of their furniture factories and ask why create a furniture company and to find the value of each furniture product manufactured.
According to Caccia, the needs that have to do with the Stone Age are the best sold by the international brands. He explained that the brands tend to sell intangible things, such as freedom, glamour, and appearance; therefore, even if the products are material made, it is necessary to think in selling methods that have as a target, selling ideals. In the case of furniture manufacturers, the ideals would have to deal with the home, place where most of the sold furniture ends.
